UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Re-rate: A definite chlorine/chemical taste from my hometown water supply. Ughh. First rating: Starts off smooth and mellow, ends with an intense, rich, roasty flavor that never seems to go away. The addition of hops is also present in the end. I'll be drinking this a lot in the near future. openwindow (67) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 21, 2005
I do like this stout. Short white head on a dark body. Malts make the beer, and it is balanced with a nice hoppy aftertaste. Perfect for winter drinking (it’d be even better on a 6-inches of snow day like today)... DarkMagus (549) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Poured a dark black/brown color with red highlights. Sizable foamy head, long lasting with lacing on the glass. Smooth, sweet, malty and nutty with a touch of hops. Slight hint of chocolate and coffee...a hefty, rich and dense brew. Pretty great, seems too good to be true, getting one of these for $1 during happy hour. mcox90 (2119) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 11, 2009
On tap at Milly’s. Pours a jet black with a 1" creamy tan head. Fair amount of tan lace coats the glass. Mouthfeel is fantastic. Smooth and creamy, goes down like heaven. Aroma is light chocolate notes with malt. Sweet flavor with light chocolate, malts & molasses. Nice easy drinking stout. puboflyons (3466) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 21, 2009
On tap at Milly’s. The pour is very dark and almost black with a creamy, frothy tan head. The aroma is of oatmeal, hops, and malts. A heavy and creamy mouthfeel that gave me a tan moustache. The taste had a good level of hops and oatmel. It was smooth altogether.

Creamy roastiness and their incumbent dry bitterness play joyfully with the raisins bathing in molasses...Slightly vinous undertones blend well with the sweet chocolate malt flavors...A perfectly competent stout... BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2006
[tap @ Milly’s] Pours almost black, with a thick white head. Flavors are moderately sweet, with plenty of chocolate and roasted malt coming through. Full mouthfeel. A nice, well made stout. WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Like all the Milly’s, a little thinner than the style might demand and a little lower in alcohol. This one had a great creamy widget / nitro mouth feel. Black with a tan head. Notes of coffee and chocolate. As all the others from Milly’s this could use a stronger malt presence.
